I'm afraid I'm not quite done with autumn yet, friends. First, an update on how the wreath turned out: Super cute, no? I wound up not using all the patterns I'd planned due to space considerations (by which I mean, really, the size of the wreath form that I used), but I love how it… Continue reading More with the autumn decor!
Happy Wednesday, friends! The temperature has taken a significant dip and it's feeling like autumn. Autumn is my favourite season and always has been. I love the sights, smells, colours, and even drinking my pumpkin spice latte in my yoga pants and big sweater. And so, the autumn spirit has caught me early this year,… Continue reading What I’m working on: an autumny wreath!

This time, the sweater/dress goes to the lovely Kathleen, and I'm adding to it all the things I didn't add to my own. Hers… Continue reading What I’m working on: a gorgeous sweater/dress for my gorgeous girl!
